Talk: The Extended Mind: Recent Experimental Evidence

9 November 2016


Author and biologist Rupert Sheldrake, PhD, leads a talk on mental and invisible fields, telepathy and the ability of the mind to extend beyond the brain both through attention and intention.

"Our minds may not be confined to the inside of our heads but extend far beyond them through mental fields, just as the invisible fields of mobile phones extend far beyond the material phones themselves. People can influence others at a distance just by looking at them, even if they look from behind.  Animals can be affected by human looks, and vice versa.  Many dogs and cats can detect their owner’s intentions telepathically by from miles away.  Some people can tell who is calling them before they pick up the phone.  Our minds seem to extend beyond our brains both through attention and intention." – Rupert Sheldrake
